Trauma can shape the way you live your life and view the world and yourself, especially if you’ve experienced repeated traumatic events or experiences throughout your life. Some may suffer from the effects of the trauma they endured repetitively in episodes throughout the week, or even throughout the day. Therapy can help you manage your trauma response to live a healthier and happier life, free from the influence of the trauma you suffered.
At JRM, we can help you get your life back through various therapy treatment methods personalized to you and your situation.
PTSD -- or Post-traumatic Stress Disorder -- may manifest itself in various ways and is a common physiological response to witnessing or experiencing a traumatic event. PTSD symptoms may take months or even years to develop or they may surface soon after the traumatic event occurs. The symptoms of PTSD include reliving the event in memory, having recurring flashbacks or nightmares, avoiding activities, people, or places that serve as reminders of the traumatic event(s), as well as physical symptoms such as difficulty sleeping or concentrating, jumpiness, and irritation or anger. If you suffer from PTSD, your daily life can be overly draining and difficult.
At JRM, we want to help you overcome your struggles and get back to living your life the way you want to.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) treatment is a physiology-based therapy method that helps you view and internalize things that cause you to react negatively because of a mental illnesses or disorder in a less-distressing way to help you in your trauma recovery process.
At JRM, we can use EMDR to help you to process and categorize traumatic life experiences so you can overcome the challenges you may have after experiencing a traumatic event.
If your spouse or partner attempts to control you or any part of your life through aggressive, violent, or manipulative means, whether physical, sexual, emotional, financial, or verbal, that is domestic violence or domestic abuse.
If you are a domestic violence survivor, you may still be suffering from the trauma you experienced and may benefit from the support and help an experienced counselor at JRM can give you.
